Valentine’s Day Luncheon
This coming Sunday, February 17th, there will be a catered Valentine’s Day luncheon in Crichton Fellowship Hall, immediately after our 10:30 worship service. Lunch will be lasagna, salad, and garlic bread, and there will be live entertainment. Tickets are $10 per person, or $20 per family, and can be purchased from Connie Mosley or the church office or the day of the luncheon.
Making Plans for 2019
There will be a church-wide planning day on Saturday, March 2nd from 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM. All church leaders and interested parties are invited to attend. We will be making plans for the remainder of the year, including for our new, just approved, early-morning Sunday worship service. It should be an informative and inspirational day of discovery for all who attend.

RESTORE News and Notes
Many are not aware that the RESTORE Thrift Store is open to the public. Starting in February, the Thrift Store will be open not only on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, but also on the first Saturday of the month. Profits from our Thrift Store go directly back into supporting food pantry operations.
The Thrift Store, in conjunction with the United Methodist Men, had a very successful recent yard sale. RESTORE also received a very generous donation of cash and food from the Christian fellowship at Rice Creek mobile home park. We want to express our thanks to Rice Creek, as well as to the many RUMC members and guests who support our Christmas angel toy and clothing drive at the end of 2018.
RESTORE is now looking for additional volunteers to help serve hot lunches to our clients on Tuesday mornings. If you would be interested in helping feed our neighbors, contact Dawn Parks or Jan Crichton.
